We’ve been making ear cuffs, threaders, and ear rings from metals like sterling silver, 20k gold-filled, and niobium for more than 20 years. We also handcraft rings from vintage silver coins and create coin earrings from silver Mercury Dimes, Buffalo Nickels, and State Quarters. Our studio is located where three rivers (the Bluestone, the New, and the Greenbrier) meet to become the New River Valley Gorge and it is Almost Heaven!

Recently, we’ve joined creative forces with an accomplished metalsmith to create WV MountainEars, marketing our art to the public through appearances at Arts & Crafts festivals in the state and region.


I became a Tamarack: The Best of West Virginia artisan in 1993. I make coin jewelry from vintage US silver coins. My initial works were primarily rings, but I added a line of earrings in the last few years. My skills and knowledge of coin art were passed down to me from my Dad, who was a Tamarack juried artisan, as well.
